10 Years
Numetal is often very agressively played,not many bands have a more emotional way of performing their songs in this popular genre but the band 10 Years from Knoxville has found a sound that is very interesting,I did a chat with their drummer coz I had to know more about this strong unit.

A Smile From The Trenches
A Smile From The Trenches
I recently caught up with the guys from A Smile From The Trenches in hopes that they would shed some light on what they have planned for us in the future. I found out much more than that and got to realize what a great bunch of guys they truly are. They genuinely care for their fans and are in the music industry for all the right reasons. Check out what the guys had to say regarding their latest album, touring, their fans and more.

Abused Romance
Abused Romance
Abused Romance is a Los Angeles based band that proves the old credo that hard work pays off in the end. The melodic rockers have built a large and loyal network of fans that have helped the act land a deal with Freeway Entertainment, a label that has the distribution pull of Universal Music Group behind it. Through one on one interaction on sites like MySpace and Facebook, Abused Romance have spread their winning blend of razor sharp guitars and hooky vocals, to people from Hollywood to Bulgaria. The band will be releasing Shine, their debut album, in a few months, but in the meantime, they've just released a stunning track called "Vaporize." Melodic reached out to the band for this brand new interview.

American Bang
American Bang
Just four boys making catchy southern-rock in Nashville, Tennessee, American Bang never knew they'd get this far. With their single "Wild and Young" climbing the charts rapidly, and their debut Bob Rock-produced album set to come out next month on Reprise, they are poised to make a huge impact. Melodic.net's Peter Fenn sat down with the band at a show on their current headlining US tour.

Anberlin
Anberlin
Anberlin are a rarity in the music world. Upon listening to their music, one encounters a unique aura about these guys, and it becomes immediately clear that they aren't your typical run-of-the-mill rock band. With songs about the balance between hope and despair, Anberlin's lyrics seem far more inspired than most. It is immediately apparent that these guys are different; these guys see the world in a way that we have all yet to figure out. Their fifth studio album and second on a major label is set to come out on the 6th of September, and the world had better be prepared, because Anberlin is poised to make an impact. Their most inspired, powerful collection of songs to date, Dark Is The Way, Light Is A Place will no doubt top many lists as one of the most anticipated records of the year. Melodic.net sat down with lead vocalist Stephen Christian to discuss the new album and all things Anberlin.

Art of Dying
Art of Dying
2011 was a great year for Canadas Art Of Dying and I'm sure that 2012 will be even better. Their major label debut "Vices and Virtues" is a wet dream for any fan of hardrock and melodic rock with great songs from start to end. I got the chance to ask the very cool guy Jonny some questions about yesterday, today and tomorrow and here it is!

Aurora Sky
Aurora Sky
Former front man for Fear The Clown, Andrew West is once again blazing ahead with his newest project Aurora Sky. 2009 looks to be a whirlwind year for this hard rock band, but despite the tasks ahead of them, he took some time to answer some questions regarding, music, life and touring. Though it has been five long years since West has been part of a full length CD release, expectations are high since hearing the release of the bands self titled EP. The time is now for Aurora Sky to make their mark on the music world and it sounds as if the band is ready to do just that.

Aurora Sky
Aurora Sky
After finishing their recording sessions in LA with famed producer Ben Grosse; Chris Shy and Andrew West can't rest now. Their hard work is just beginning as they now have to hit the active rock radio scene and gear up for label showcases. They did manage to find time to sit down and fill us in on how the recording went and the exciting changes that have happened to the band. The time is now for these guys and they are ready for anything.

Aurora Sky
Aurora Sky
Twists and turns and ups and downs, this is life for up and coming bands. Aurora Sky is no exception. Early on in their brief existence this band has released a self titled EP, produced highly anticipated music with famed producer Ben Grosse and seen band members come and go. In spite of some set backs, they have continued to press forward and are still gearing up for more label showcases and a possible tour. I recently caught up with their newest member, drummer Mike (CHOPS) Finucane to get his thoughts on joining the band and how he enjoys working with some old friends.

Blackmores Night
Blackmores Night
You have to hand it to Ritchie Blackmore and Candice Night, the husband and wife duo that drives Blackmore's Night have managed to carve out a huge following despite not following scene trends. Sure, Ritchie was already a household name by the time Blackmore's Night began, but his work with Candice is nothing like the hard rock he bashed out in Deep Purple and Rainbow. These days he writes and performs music steeped in the Renaissance and ancient folk tradition of his home country. Without the support of radio and TV, Blackmore's Night has still sold tons of albums throughout the world, with the kind of rabid fan support usually reserved for younger artists. Autumn Sky, the group's newest album, will be out in America on 1/18 and Melodic.net wanted to talk to Candice about the band and their unique career.

Brian Vander Ark
Brian Vander Ark
To be honest The Verve Pipe never really blew me away, not that i disliked that band, no i liked the outfit but i thought the band offered us something weve heard before from other acts. Much to my surprise was the "Resurrection" mega solo release from their leadsinger Brian Vander Ark a few years ago. I remember it not only caught the attention from me but also from our dear friend Mr Winberg who had (just like me) "Resurrection" very high on his yearlist. That album contained songs who stayed in your head for days ! It looks that this Brian Vander Ark has more to offer on himself than with his band. Well a few years later he strikes back with another killer solo album titled "Angel, Put Your Face On". If you are just like me into the likes of Joe Firstman, Michael Penn, David Mead, Charlie Sexton, Randall Bramblett or Josh kelley, then seek no further and pay him a visite on brianvanderark.com to obtain this new masterpiece which was recently released ! Heres what the good man had to say to us .....

Carl Dixon
Carl Dixon
<p dir="ltr" style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;"> <u><strong><img alt="" src="http://rockandribs.ca/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Carl-Dixon-458x458.jpg" style="width: 458px; height: 458px; float: left;" />CARL DIXON INTERVIEW</strong></u><br /> <br /> <br /> Well, <strong>Coney Hatch</strong>. Of course I was aware of them since the &#39;80s... but because of some reason I am not able to explain, I never cared about them. When I first went to England in 2011, because of the Firefest Festival, they were one of the most expected artists then, and I couldn&#39;t care less. Anyway, I was there and Coney Hatch was the next band to go on stage. Few times before that I was so wrong, and disappointed in myself! They delivered one of the best shows of the three-day festival. Easily. As I was there with some other people, who were also big music fans (one doesn&#39;t go to the other side of the world to watch bands if he or she is not one, just for the record... ), those who had had the chance to meet the guys in the band and get pictures and autographs, I was even more frustrated for not being a fan before. I was so ashamed of myself that I wouldn&#39;t dare ask the band for pictures... I didn&#39;t even have their albums! Yes, we do stupid things sometimes...<br /> &nbsp;</p> <p dir="ltr" style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;"> As soon as I got home from England I had the whole Coney Hatch collection ordered and coming my way, as well as some of Carl Dixon&#39;s solo albums, the ones I could still find... I finally decided to try to contact Carl and see if I could get his other solo albums I couldn&#39;t get by myself. He kindly replied and then I finally told him this very same story you are reading now. I guess Carl was touched by my sincerity and I got the CDs from him and, since then, we kept in touch. Man, not only Coney Hatch was a great band (I got really addicted to their music) but also Carl&#39;s solo stuff and his being such a nice a guy made me a huge Coney Hatch fan.<br /> &nbsp;</p> <p dir="ltr" style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;"> In 2012 my band was recording its third album, and I invited Carl to guest on it. It took him some time to agree, since he was busy doing some project. Unfortunately, when he was available our album had been finished and mixed, and it was then too late to have him on it. But it was for a good reason...<br /> &nbsp;</p> <p dir="ltr" style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;"> In 2013, Coney Hatch released their last, fabulous last album &quot;Four&quot; (that was why he wasn&#39;t available, only if I knew about the making of it!!!), and I was back in England for Firefest, and Carl Dixon&#39;s was playing a couple of unplugged solo gigs there, and as we had become kind of friends online, I dared to ask him to guest on my favorite song if he was playing it. He was a bit apprehensive at first, but then he was totally cool about it. I couldn&#39;t believe I was going to jam with Carl Dixon!!! I guested on &quot;Girl From Last Night&#39;s Dream&quot; and, till this day, I consider it as one of the top, unforgettable moments of my career as a musician. I&#39;ll never be able to thank Carl enough for that! A night that will never be forgotten!!! Other than old classics, some of his solo stuff and classic Coney Hatch songs, he played &quot;Blown Away&quot;, &quot;Keep Driving&quot; and &quot;Holding On&quot;, off the then new Coney Hatch &quot;Four&quot; album.&nbsp; Years still come to my eyes when I remember Carl saying he had had a dream playing &quot;Holding On&quot; live and having a crowd singing it along with him... Such a magic moment!!!<br /> &nbsp;</p> <p dir="ltr" style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;"> In 2014 I was back in England for Firefest and Coney Hatch was there again. Lucky me! I could meet Carl again and finally meet Andy Curran and Dave Ketchum. Steve Shelski&nbsp;hadn&#39;t been available this time,and Coney Hatch played with another lead guitarist. The guys were great people and their 2014 Firefest show was as good as their 2011 one... WOW, what a band!!!<br /> &nbsp;</p> <p dir="ltr" style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12.8px;"> To go with my personal tribute to the 3rd Anniversary of Coney Hatch&#39;s last album, the wonderful &quot;Four&quot;, here you have an exclusive interview with the incredible, one and only, band&#39;s singer / guitarist / songwriter <strong>Carl Dixon</strong>. I hope you all enjoy it as we did!!!</p>

Crash Kings
Crash Kings
Few bands can claim the record that Crash Kings have after just one album. Their debut single "Mountain Man" reached #1 on the Billboard Alternative Rock chart, quite a feat for a new band. The unique feeling to Crash Kings doesn't end there. Their debut album full of catchy single-worthy songs was released in 2009, and has spawned two charting singles thus far. We recently caught up with the band for a few questions.
